Applying to our Sixth Form

Our aspiration for every student when they join us in year 7 is that they stay with us through to year 13, but we also welcome students from all over Southwark, Lewisham, Lambeth and the surrounding boroughs to our Sixth Form.
Entry to our Sixth Form is subject to having achieved the minimum entry requirements (see below) and an academic reference. The academic demands at Sixth Form level are rigorous.

We require students to achieve at least five Grade 5s including Mathematics and
English Language as a standard entry requirement.

You will be expected to achieve a minimum of a Grade 6 in the subjects you wish to study for A-Levels or Grade 5s for vocational subjects.

Please note that, as some subjects are offered for the first time at A-Level, the entry requirements may focus on grades in facilitating subjects, usually Maths, English Language or a Science. Please refer carefully to the entry
requirements for each subject.

If you have any questions or require further information, please email sixthformprogresswelfare@baconscollege.co.uk
